January 10, 2018
Engineering can become extremely complicated. That’s why it is typically a wise move to leave it up to the professionals and why most companies end up outsourcing engineering services for major projects.
But engineering is a broad term. There are many different types of engineering, and within those types is a wide range of different services and capabilities each can provide.
Here’s a list that highlights some of the most common forms of engineering and the various services each one can offer. Hopefully this will help you find what you’re looking for if you ever have to outsource engineering work yourself.
Mechanical Engineering: Mechanical engineering services that can be outsourced include CAD conversion & migration services; 2D drafting services; 3D modeling & rendering services; reverse engineering services; plastic injection & blow molding; mechanical 3D product animation; finite element analysis; and plant design management system.
Structural Engineering: Structural engineers can be outsourced for services such as high rise structures design & analysis; industrial structures design & analysis; custom homes design & analysis; retrofitting & rehabilitation of structures; finite element modeling & analysis; and peer review services.
Architectural Services: An architectural engineer can provide services including architectural drafting & detailing; 3D rendering services; retail space planning & design; 3D architectural animation services; landscape design & drafting services; building information model.
Civil Engineering: A civil engineer would be outsourced to provide paper to CAD conversion services; construction drawing services; land development design services; construction cost estimation services; MEP design & drafting services; HVAC services; and geospatial services.
Electrical Engineering: When outsourced, electrical engineers are used to complete tasks such as electrical instrumentations services; PCB design and layout services; electrical design & layout services; engineering diagrams & technical drawings; installation & calibration of electrical equipment; power distribution; and control system architecture.
